The Moulin a Vent area is known colloquially as the 'Lord of Beaujolais' for its wines possessing room for aging. These bottles contain wine from Gamay vines with an average age of 50 years, worth drinking alongside red meat and strong cheese.
The Perrachon family are significant in Beaujolais Village of Julienas, going way back, first mentionned in 1601. They are now specialists covering several well known grand cru villages. Laurent Perachon respects the traditions of Beaujolais production, with a modern approach. Low yields, old vines, harvesting by hands. the results speak for themselves, we were very impressed, I am sure you will be too.
The 2015 Moulin a Vent Terres Roses comes from 65-year-old vines and sees 9 months in concrete tank and foudres. It has a feisty bouquet of cassis, red cherries and spice - all well defined and focused. The palate is medium-bodied with sweet red cherry and cassis notes, grippy in the mouth with a sustained, quite structured finish. Like the Morgon, it will need a year or two in bottle to mellow and gain more elegance, but it will be worth the wait.
Vivid ruby. Ripe red berries, candied violet and a suggestion of smoky minerals on the perfumed nose. Fleshy but energetic, offering gently sweet cherry, black raspberry and spicecake flavors given spine and lift by juicy acidity. In the assertive, concentrated style of the vintage, but this wine shows no excess weight and finishes sappy, long and juicy, with smooth tannins coming in late.
